I don’t often read the Huffington Post, so I missed this when it was posted. After reading it, well, Jonathan Rettinger doesn’t understand Microsoft, and he doesn’t understand business.
Microsoft has released it’s version of Office for the IPad/IPhone. A quick evaluation shows that Microsoft has made major mistakes with the design.
For years I’ve been warning everyone that Microsoft as a corporation is in deep trouble. Now Microsoft’s share of the new device market is down to 19%…
Ever wonder why Microsoft has historically been so bad at crushing bugs? I think I know why.
Kleopatra and I have been laughing ourselves silly. Everybody got the Apple announcements from Tuesday September 10, 2013 wrong.
Not just wrong, DEAD WRONG.
Like a lot of people, I’ve been following the NSA Spying Scandal closely. In fact, I’ve been following it for several years, since before I first ran into Barrett Brown. Seriously. The leaks about go back a long way, and most writers appear to have missed the implications.
A couple of days ago I wrote about Ballmer’s impending retirement. One of the points I made is that Ballmer appears of have made the choice, that he isn’t being pushed out. A lot of writers have effectively written Ballmer off as a spent force at Microsoft.
Then Microsoft buys Nokia’s handset division…
Ever see those ads – SPEED UP YOUR PC NOW!
Ever take a close look at them?
Compare the image with the Blonde model too
The image with the Brunette model. Being models, they are pretty. But…
This ad is aimed at Windows users, and the women are using Macs. Due to the small size of the images, it is hard to be certain, but the Windows 8 Desktop doesn’t seem to line up properly with the physical screen.
You think they’d at least pick a Dell or HP computer for the ad, wouldn’t you? Would you really trust someone that can’t even use the correct computer in an ad? I wouldn’t.

Steve Ballmer has announced his retirement. I’ve held back on commenting, so that all the usual suspects could make fools of themselves first…
What do you do, when a friend complains that Microsoft Windows has stopped working. Again.
When you make the obvious suggestion, that possibly it isn’t a good idea to use Windows if it causes that many problems, you get screamed at. It’s too expensive to buy a Mac. It’s too expensive to switch to Linux (though all it costs is a blank CD-R or DVD-R).
